7/5 Woodhouse Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Late C17 or early C18. Red Flemish bond brick with a
plain tile roof. Entrance front: five bays symmetrically disposed.
Central doorway with C19 6-panelled door and C19 gabled timber porch.
To either side at ground floor level are C19 3-light casement windows
with tile sills and flat-arched heads each of which would appear from
variations in the surrounding brickwork to replace two 2-light
casement windows. Between the ground and first floors is a band of 3
bricks depth, the two outer rows projecting and the central row
recessed. The five first floor windows are all of two casement lights
with C20 tile sills and flat-arched heads of gauged brick. The roof
is hipped and has a chimney stack at right. The right hand side has a
band of 2 bricks depth between the ground and first floors. Two C20
2-light casement windows at right of centre to ground floor and first
floor and two blocked cambered headed windows at far right. The
ground floor one now holding a C20 cambered headed window of reduced
height. The rear has two projecting gabled wings at left and right
with ashlar kneelers and coping. The right hand gable has a C20
outshut at ground floor level with a 2-light cambered headed casement
window at left now expanded at the side to accommodate a wider C20
metal framed window. Band of 2 bricks depth between the floors and a
cross window to the first floor at left. The left hand gable end has
a band between the floors and a 2-light casement window. Between the
two wings there originally ran a passage or light well which was
filled in in the C19 to provide an extra room to the ground and first
floors each with a single-light window.
Interior: The ground floor front rooms have panelled window seats and
shutters and 8 doors, each of 6 panels to the ground and first floors.
The staircase has cut string, turned balusters and column newel posts
with a swept and ramped moulded handrail. The first floor rooms and
landing also have panelled window seats although those in the room at
left of the entrance front are C19 or C20 replacements. The room at
right of the entrance front has two fitted cupboards to either side of
the chimney with panelled doors with arched tops. The back staircase
has a moulded handrail and square newel posts but stick balusters of
C19 date. Five plank doors to the attic.
